Habitual offender designation, drug-related convictions sends Rogers woman to prison for ten years
A 24-year-old Rogers woman who was given a 10-year sentence in Franklin County- as a habitual offender earlier this month on drug charges was remanded to the custody of the Arkansas Department of Corrections on Tuesday to begin serving her time.
In a court proceeding in the Ozark District in Franklin County, Stephanie Lynn Stacy entered into a plea agreement on two counts of Delivery of Methamphetamine or Cocaine over a two-day period in September of 2019. Stacy sold nine and seven grams of meth to confidential informants on September 17 and 18, 2019, resulting in her arrest.
Stacy was actually given a ten-year sentence on each count but the court announced concurrent sentencing. She also faces 36 months of suspended sentences which will serve as probationary status once she is released from custody.
Stacy has been on the outs with area law enforcement on a regular basis as far back as 2016. Felony paraphernalia charges against here were dismissed after her first felony arrest and a conviction for Hindering Prosecution during the same time period drew just a 36-month suspended sentence.
In total. Stacy has had at least nine felony arrests since 2016. She was given probation in one case after she agreed to testify against her con-defendant. She currently is sentenced to a total of 442 months for five different felony convictions with all of the terms set to run concurrently.
She was transported to the McPherson Unit in Newport on Tuesday.
